Evelyn cooked a special delicious anniversary meal for us and provided a modern comfortable suite for our 3 night stay. She was most helpful in helping with reservations and a joy to converse with about life on the Coramandel Peninsula.

The drive to Evelyn's "Alpine" retreat is quite a challenge for a small engined hire car but the effort is well rewarded on arrival. A truly stunning property with fantastic views owned by a charming and caring hostess. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay and recommend it very highly.

We had a wonderful stay at "Buffalo Lodge". The most tranquil place you're ever likely to stay! Evelyn is an exceptional hostess, and left us with extremely fond memories of both herself as well as her beautiful corner of the Coromandel Peninsular. Our en suite room was not over fussy but comfortable and we had the best sleep we had... More

This was our second stay at this beautiful, esthetically perfect place after 13 years. Evelyne is still the same great hostess and cook. Spectacular views from all the rooms and no unfulfilled wishes. For European travellers it should be noted that Evelyne is not only mastering Mandarin and English but also French, German and even Swiss German as she worked... More

A beautiful place in the hills above Coromandel village. Evelyn helps in many ways to make your stay a great experience. We had the back room with unbelievable vistas. The house is reminiscent of an alpine retreat - a result of her late swiss husband. The dining area is three walls of glass allowing you to watch the birds dart... More

Coromandel is a wonderful place to visit and a stay at Buffalo Lodge enhances it. Evelyn has a beautiful home and shares it with you. The rooms are stunning and the breakfast provided comes from her garden and her chickens is delicious. The view is to be believed. We really enjoyed it there.

Our one night stay here was arranged by a travel agent. We had a lovely room with a balcony and view over the trees. The B&B was built for that purpose so there is a large livingroom area for guests and breakfast. The cheerful owner gave us refreshing tea, and her morning breakfast was quite substantial. The fresh eggs were... More

We have stayed at many B & Bs in New Zealand over the past 6 years, all great, but this is probably the best of the lot, and this was our second visit. Our lovely room had a large balcony overlooking bush, sea and mountains beyond, and a bathroom set out into the bush so that you are surrounded by... More

We started our annual NZ trip in the Coromandels and found Buffalo Lodge via Trip Advisor. What a wonderful discovery. Evelyne is the most charming host, sharing her wonderful home and life with us. Her knowledge of and contacts in the local area make planning your day to day activities easy. The area around Coromandel town is fabulous - in... More
